SideOffer

Description

You need to get your offer or call to action noticed, and this plugin can help. A slick side tab pop-out slider with fully customizable graphics, SideOffer is designed to help increase leads and conversions by allowing you to present your offer in a persistant side tab on every page of your site, giving your users more opportunity to take notice and take action!

SideOffer was developed to help strengthen and sustain your inbound marketing and conversion optimization efforts. You could collect emails for your newsletter, offer a free download or make your contact form available on every page. How you use it is up to you, but the net result is the same: By making it easier for your users to act on your offer, you grow your funnel, and generate more inbound leads!

We’re firm believers in eating our own dog food, and we’ve been using this on our client sites, as well as our own, testing, optimizing and revising this plugin to make it as user friendly as possible.

Features include:

  • Easy and Interactive Setup with real-time visual feedback
  • Anchor link triggering via inclusion the “sideoffer” class
  • Custom Background Graphics (PSD Source Included)

Future Improvements

  • Fully customizable pure CSS side tab

FAQ

SideOffer works on the admin screen, but not on my site

The most likely cause is a JavaScript error somewhere in your site. Usually this is caused by a 3rd party plugin. Use the JavaScript console in your browser to identify the issue. Unfortunately we cannot troubleshoot issues with 3rd party plugins, so you should contact the author of that plugin for a fix. If the problem is with the SideOffer code please post in the SideOffer Support Forum with the following details:

  • Site URL
  • SideOffer Background Images URL
  • WordPress Version
  • Plugin Version

Include as many other relevent details as you can so we can try to pinpoint the problem.

My shortcode doesn’t work on the admin screen

This is due to a limitation in do_shortcode(). Your shortcode will execute properly on the front-end of the site.

Missing Crucial Features

Couldnt see my post in support section. so reposting here with a 2 star.
1. Button positions:
Only right side. A crippling feature.
2. reset image to default:
once a custom image is set, it cannot be reset to default.
3. If content is long, it remains hidden.
(Solution: Add overflow: auto;
under “#sideoffer” section of “sideoffer.php”) Although the content extends outside the container while scrolling. Probably it needs its own div.

Worth 5 stars, if these changes are introduced.
